The Fil-Aussie Interstate Friendship golf cup which is now composed of almost 100 golfers coming from all over states and territories in Australia has been held in Manila annually for the past thirteen (13) years. The venues were carefully selected four (4) championship and privately owned golf courses. It is being hosted alternately by states & territories in Australia on a round robin basis. In March next year (2018) it would be hosted by Australian Capital Territory headed by Luke Rivet and assisted by Ariel Pattugalan. The Canberra golfers promised to be another exciting golfing year with new golf courses slated to be played. It is also expected that a team from Wellington, New Zealand would be joining next year’s tournament.
